Please call for availability for our Child Care and Preschool programs.

Sandy Hook Child Care Center runs a Child Care program for infants and toddlers aged six weeks to 2 1/2 years, and a Preschool program for toddlers aged 2 1/2 to 5 years.  We keep our class sizes small, with high teacher-to-student ratios, and limit attendance to no more than fifteen children each day.  This creates an intimate educational environment, and one that is perfect for children who are new to out-of-home care. 


We are open Monday through Friday, from 7:30am to 6:00pm, and offer flexible full and part-time schedules, as well as drop-ins whenever possible.

Full Day:

Children can be dropped off anytime between 7:30-9:30 AM and picked up anytime before 6 pm.

All tuition fees are payable monthly, and a 10% sibling discount will be applied to the eldest student if applicable. A registration fee of $50 is required at the time of enrollment, and a $100 activity fee is due annually.
